Latin American Student Ambassador 

My name is Claudia Linan and I am currently in my PhD’s thesis writing -up year. I am doing a PhD International Development and I have been at UEA for four years now. Now that I think about it, that´s a lot! But it shows that I have been really happy here. I first started with my MA International Social Development at UEA and decided to stay because of the great environment and reputation this university and its staff have to offer.

As part of my PhD programme I have been encouraged to present research posters and speak at conferences and publish at renowned academic journals. This has helped me disseminate my research and learn and share with like-minded people which has enriched my research project further. Since I was in my Masters’ and preparing my research proposal to apply for a PhD, I always found support and openness from my teachers, which I find to be one of the outstanding characteristics from professors at UEA.

During my Masters’ year I accommodations at UEA and I can’t recommend it enough. I was living at Suffolk Terrace and I loved having a window overlooking UEA’s lake. I lived with other students from all over the world.  I had flatmates from Japan, Russia, USA, the UK, Romania, China, and Azerbaijan. One of the parts I loved the most about it was the potlucks we organised; I got to try lovely and exotic dishes. I was lucky because I am still in contact with some of them. I never felt lonely, and whenever I wanted to be in complete silence, the library was just 2 minutes away and it is open 24/7.

All in all, UEA has made my experience as an international student outstanding and I can´t recommend it enough!

Me llamo Claudia Linan y me encuentro actualmente escribiendo la tesis de mi Doctorado en Desarrollo Internacional. He estado ya cuatro años en UEA! Qué rápido se pasa el tiempo! Pero de verdad he estado realmente feliz aquí. Inicie mis estudios en UEA hace tres años con la Maestría en Desarrollo Social Internacional y decidí quedarme por el gran ambiente y reputación que le preceden a esta Universidad y a todo su staff.

Como parte de mi programa doctoral, he estado motivada a presentar mi investigación a manera de posters, conferencias y en publicaciones en reconocidas revistas académicas. Esto me ha ayudado a diseminar mi Proyecto y compartir con otros académicos, lo cual ha enriquecido mi propuesta. Desde que estuve en la Maestría y preparando mi propuesta de investigación para aplicar al Doctorado, siempre he encontrado un apoyo cercano y una actitud abierta de parte de todos mis maestros, algo que creo es una característica única de los profesores en UEA.

Durante el año que duro mi Maestría estuve viviendo en Suffolk Terrace, una de las tantas opciones de Residencias en UEA y les puedo decir que realmente recomiendo la experiencia. Me encanto vivir con gente de literal todo el mundo, tuve compañeros de Japón, Rusia, Estados Unidos, Romania, Reino Unido, China y Azarbajan. Una de las cosas que más disfruté fue cuando nos juntábamos a cocinar y cada quien traía algo típico de su país, pude probar platillos deliciosos y súper exóticos. Soy muy afortunada porque pude hacer buenos amigos con los que aún estoy en contacto. Nunca me sentí sola, y cuando necesitaba estar en completo silencio o concentrarme más, la biblioteca la tenía a dos minutos y podía estar allí cuanto quisiera, ya que está abierta las 24 horas del día. Por si esto no fuera suficiente, tenía el lago muy cerquita de mí y sentía única la oportunidad de poder ver hacia afuera de mi ventana a gente corriendo o paseando a sus perros por la mañana, que hasta yo me motivaba para ir a ejercitarme.

Venezuela / Colombia: Cecilia - BA Society, Culture and Media

My name is Cecilia Calle and I am studying Society, Culture and Media at UEA. I am currently in my second year in the university, and I can honestly say coming here is one of the best decisions I’ve made! Because I was raised in different countries, a multicultural environment was a crucial aspect when choosing where to study, something that I quickly found here at UEA, which is already well known for its academic excellence and high student satisfaction, as well as a very high reputation in media related courses like mine.

In addition, living on campus in my first year allowed me to meet wonderful, diverse people that became very good friends and a helping hand when needed, while also having all the perks of living on campus. Being both Venezuelan and Colombian, living this far away from home felt like a very challenging experience at first, especially because it was the first time I was coming to the UK, but in the space of a few weeks UEA and Norwich became my home away from home.

When first arriving, everything can feel a little intimidating, especially for an international student, because everything feels so different and new compared to what we are used to! But here at UEA, there is always someone to help you when you find yourself in these situations: there are societies for all sorts of interests, services like the Dean of students to help you feel comfortable with your academic skills and constantly improve them, workshops for every aspect of a student’s life, whether it is learning how to use the library or how to write better essays, interesting public lectures, Career and CV services, excellent facilities and a great international environment, you can find it all! All of these services and opportunities were very important for me, because I was coming from a completely different educational system, so I really needed to feel at ease with my academic abilities.

Additionally, I was really charmed by Norwich and all it has to offer. Norwich is a perfect combination of charming little town with endless activities and interesting things going on, and it is so different from anything I had ever experienced before, as cities in South America can be very big and sometimes daunting. It’s a city full of hidden gems, ranging from small little restaurants to a vibrant nightlife, stunning churches and antique shops, and all the great activities a city with both students and a rich history has to offer. The campus is also very beautiful, and has many things to offer. Overall, coming to study at UEA has been an extremely positive experience for me, and it has exceeded my expectations in every way, thanks to all the wonderful things it has to offer, and the welcoming people I’ve met along the way, something very important as a Latin American student!

                                                                                                                                                                        

Mi nombre es Cecilia Calle y estoy estudiando Sociedad, Cultura y Medios en UEA. Este es mi Segundo año en la Universidad, ¡y la verdad es que venir a estudiar en UEA es una de las mejores decisiones que he hecho! Por mi experiencia viviendo y viajando a muchos países en mi infancia y adolescencia, el aspecto multicultural era muy importante para mí y era algo crucial al escoger mi universidad, y es algo que encontré con mucha facilidad aquí en UEA, además de la excelente reputación académica en todas las áreas, y con diplomas relacionados con medios como el mío.

En mi primer año tuve la oportunidad de vivir en las residencias de la universidad,  perfectas para estudiantes y con todo lo positivo de vivir en el campus, sobretodo porque toda la vida académica y social están a cortas distancias. Fue una experiencia que me permitió conocer a gente maravillosa de todas partes del mundo, que siempre están ahí para ayudarme cuando lo necesito, además de tener todos los beneficios de vivir en el campus.

Soy venezolana y colombiana, y eso quiere decir que mi pertenencia cultural es muy fuerte, por lo que se me hizo un poco difícil alejarme tanto de casa, pero en el espacio de algunas semanas Norwich y UEA se volvieron rápidamente un hogar lejos del hogar.

Al llegar por primera vez, todo se siente un poco intimidante, especialmente para un estudiante internacional, ¡porque todo es tan diferente y nuevo en comparación con lo que estamos acostumbrados! Pero aquí, en UEA, siempre hay alguien para ayudar cuando uno se encuentra en estas situaciones: hay sociedades de todo tipo de intereses, servicios como el decano de los estudiantes para ayudarte a sentirte cómodo con tus habilidades académicas y la mejora constante de ellas, talleres para cada aspecto de la vida de un estudiante, si se trata de aprender cómo utilizar la biblioteca o cómo escribir mejores ensayos, conferencias públicas interesantes, servicios de carrera y CV, excelentes instalaciones y un gran entorno internacional, se puede encontrar de todo! Todos estos servicios y oportunidades eran muy importantes para mí, porque yo venía de un sistema educativo completamente diferente, por lo que realmente lo necesitaba para sentirme a gusto con mis habilidades académicas.

Pero no todo son siempre estudios: Norwich es una ciudad muy enigmática, y tiene mucho  que ofrecer. Es una combinación perfecta de la pequeña y encantadora ciudad con un sinfín de actividades y cosas interesantes, y es tan diferente de todo lo que había experimentado antes, sobretodo porque las ciudades latinoamericanas suelen ser muy grandes y a veces sobrecogedoras. Es una ciudad llena de joyas ocultas, que van desde pequeños restaurantes a una vida nocturna para  todas las edades, iglesias impresionantes y tiendas de antigüedades, y todas las actividades de una ciudad con estudiantes y una rica historia tiene que ofrecer. El campus también es muy bonito, y tiene muchas cosas que ofrecer. Venir a estudiar en UEA ha sido una experiencia muy positiva para mí, y ha superado mis expectativas en todos los sentidos, gracias a todas las cosas maravillosas que tiene para ofrecer, y a todas las personas tan acogedoras que he conocido a lo largo del camino, ¡algo muy importante para los estudiantes latinoamericanos!


Mexico: Harlen - MSc Marketing

Hello, my name is Harlen Gonzalez and I am from Chihuahua Mexico. I am currently studying an Msc Marketing degree in the UEA. About two years ago, I started the process of searching for a postgraduate in the UK, I had a few options of universities with marketing programs, but I finally decided to apply to the UEA, a part of the fact that the program is very complete; the university has an excellent academic level, which really helps in obtaining scholarships or funding. The program is really interesting and the lecturers are very well prepared, they're excellent. All the lectures are focused for when the day of tomorrow comes, we can be entrepreneurs instead of employees.

The university is distinguished because of the international students from all around the world, I've had the opportunity of sharing my knowledge, but especially of learning from different cultures; in the time I've been student in the UEA, I have met people from Africa, Greece, India, China, Taiwan, among other countries, and from which I've made really good friends. Besides the academic life, UEA offers a huge range of activities, you can join parties from the International Students Society, concerts which are organized every now and then inside the University and even UEA has its own lake, so you can take a free afternoon to relax and walk around the lake.

Norwich is a beautiful city rich in culture, where you will find an open market, cinemas, cathedrals, museums, among other things, besides the city is really near to London, Cambridge and other interesting cities, so you can easily take a train on a weekend and go travel to other places.
 

Hola, mi nombre es Harlen González y soy de Chihuahua, México. Actualmente estoy estudiando una maestría en Mercadotecnia en la UEA. Hace aproximadamente dos años inicié el proceso de búsqueda para estudiar un posgrado en Inglaterra, tenía varias opciones de universidades que manejan programas de mercadotecnia, pero finalmente decidí aplicar a la UEA ya que además de contar con un programa muy completo, la universidad tiene un excelente nivel académico, lo cual ayuda bastante para encontrar becas o financiamiento. El programa es muy interesante y los maestros que imparten las materias están muy bien preparados, son excelentes. Todas las materias están enfocadas para que el día de mañana seamos emprendedores y no empleados.
 
La universidad se caracteriza porque tiene estudiantes de todo el mundo, he tenido la oportunidad de compartir mis conocimientos pero sobre todo, de aprender acerca de diferentes culturas; en el tiempo que llevo de estudiante en UEA, he conocido personas de África, Grecia, India, China, Taiwán, entre otros países, y de los cuales he hecho muy buenos amigos. Aparte de lo académico, la universidad ofrece una amplia gama de actividades, puedes acudir a fiestas que organiza la Sociedad de Estudiantes Internacionales, conciertos que se organizan de vez en cuando en la universidad e incluso la UEA tiene su propio lago, así que puedes tomarte una tarde para relajarte y dar un paseo.
 
Norwich es una hermosa ciudad llena de cultura, donde encontrarás desde un mercado abierto hasta cines, catedrales, museos, entre otras cosas; además es una ciudad muy segura y la gente es muy amable. La ciudad está muy cerca de Londres, Cambridge y otras ciudades interesantes, así que fácilmente puedes tomar el tren un fin de semana y salir a conocer más lugares.
